About Me

My name is Lia, I'm in my 40's, Canadian, married mom of 2 girls. I work full time, enjoy cats, nature and animals in general, books and related items, kawaii, arts & crafts. I like fitness and healthy living. I like cute and girly things, make-up and jewlery..but I am also a geek, gamer (FB, The Sims, 3DS) and fantasy nerd.

My daughters are 10 years apart. One is 25 and moved out. My youngest is 15.

I have 2 fur-children.

Minion, is my daughter's cat. He is a black and white tux cat. 2014

Moochie is our newest addition. He was a stray we adopted into our home. He is part bengal/tabby brown and black stripes. We are unsure of his age, but likely born in fall 2015.

Current Obssesions - Stickers! - Planning and planners!

Swap Business

Swap Business Please if for some reason you do not receive my swap, let me know. I can guarantee it will be caught up in the mail, not that I didn't send it. I will gladly resend. If there is ever a problem, or postage due, I will correct that also. I take all my swaps directly to the post office to weigh and measure for the correct postage. My post office is a rural one, I'd imagine the postmark will not match the day I took it there, but I send swaps way before the due date any way. Mail coming to me is a little slow, but I will rate as soon as I've opened it.

Rating I rate and give hearts based on the swap itself, not because of extras and I hope you would do me the same courtesy.

I Pledge to Rate

I wont do a Wall of Shame, but I have been non-rated 3 times and 1 flake, plus a couple barely passable packages. Kind of discouraging, so I am now more picky about swaps I join and tend to stick more to group swaps.

  • I DO have pets, but will try very hard to keep stray hairs from my packaging :D
